STEVE at 473
February 28, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - February 29, 2020 @ 8:00 pm$10
STEVE is back on the 473 stage on February 28th for Lead Day Weekend!
STEVE is the brainchild of Luke Dick, an Oklahoma born, Nashville based songsmith who has penned hits for the likes of Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves and Dierks Bentley.
The band’s 2018 summer “anti-war ditty” “F*** a Bomb” delivers its rebellious message in a way that only STEVE could conjure – “F*** a bomb, drop a single,” a tongue-in-cheek call-to-arms that landed the band on Spotify’s Rock This playlist (4.5 MILLION followers). STEVE went on to release the follow-up single “Chaotic Good” in November, premiering the music video with American Songwriter who called the single “three minutes of gloriously irreverent post-punk with hints of melodic power-pop and heady new wave.” It’s just another example of the band’s quirky lyrics and outside-the-box compositions that have already garnered admiration from outlets like NPR, who’s Ann Powers invited STEVE in for a World Cafe Nashville Session and states “Dick has a strong voice and vision in his own right, and it manifests in stories more creative — and funnier — than what Music Row usually offers,” and Rolling Stone Country who featured Dick with an in depth interview, calling STEVE Dick’s “irreverent Nashville punk band” and adding that “Dick is a something of an anomaly in the Nashville songwriting community.”
2020 kicked off with the release of Dick’s first feature-length documentary film Red Dog, which he co-directed, co-produced and scored. The film revisits his child- hood, growing up at the infamous strip club where his mother danced in Oklahoma City. After premiering at film festivals across the country, Red Dog reached #5 on the iTunes documentary chart.
